    Hi,

    Is anyone using/or has used an engravable photo frame with an engravable mat for their guest book? I just ordered one and love the idea of it. I like that I can display it in our home after the wedding and will also have the guests at our VERY casual AHR sign it. I'm worried about carrying it on the plane though...it it will be too cumbersone, etc. What if anything did or will you use to display the frame at your reception? Also...did you attach the pen to the frame in any way? I'm worried about someone walking off with the only pen that can be used!! Thanks.

      I was looking into doing this and had similar questions. The only thing I know is that I want a 8x10 frame. What size were you going with?

        Hi,

        I did use one for my wedding...it was 20 x25 with a place for an 8x10 photo. It was very large and I was barely able to pack it in a bag. I didn't want to chance having it as a carry-on as it exceeds the limit in size. As far as wanting an 8x10 frame....I have never seen one of these that small...you need to have space to place the photo and room around it in which your guests can sign it.

          I had an 11 x 14 engraveable photo frame that fit a 5 x 7 photo. You could fit it into a carry-on bag. However, we did not fly, we were married on a cruise and were within driving distance to the cruise port, so we just carried it onto the cruise in the original shipping box and made a carrying strap for the box out of duct tape... lol.

          We just had the frame set out on a table. We were able to keep up with the pen suprisingly, but we didn't attach it to the frame in any way. The frame came with a 5x7 instruction card for the guests that we put into a double photo frame and set up next to the signature frame. On one side of the double frame we had the instruction card, on the other side, we had a 5X7 photo of our two dogs dressed up in wedding clothes with a note on the photo that said "Don't forget to sign the guestbook".

            Another suggestion so it won't be so heavy is a photo book.

              I love this idea, where do you get these frames from?

                  I got mine from Overstock.com but the engraving did not come out well at all...no matter how hard you press...it is very light.
